San francisco, Tuesday January 15th 7Pm
Carrie Hott is an interdisciplinary artist based in Oakland, California. Her work is informed by a roving research practice that explores the current and historic infrastructural systems that mediate our collective experiences and perceptions. Some of her research interests include whales, artificial light, and the systems often employed to learn about our surroundings. She has presented her work as part of exhibitions and projects across the country, most recently at Bay Area Now 8 at YBCA in San Francisco and the Museum of Capitalism in Oakland, as well as a permanent project, The Key Room, at the Headlands Center for the Arts. She has recently presented public programs at the Mills College Art Museum and Beta-Local in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and is a recipient of the 2017 Artadia Award in San Francisco.
Veronica Graham is an Oakland based visual artist primarily working in print and digital mediums. Inspired by today’s rapidly changing environment, she sees her art practice as a form of world building. Each work is the creation of place or artifact, calling attention to how fiction is weaved into our reality. In 2012 she founded Most Ancient, a design studio focused on small press and digital production. Her books have been collected by SFMoMA, MoMA, The New York Public Library, The Library of Congress, Stanford University, Yale University, and other public and private collections. Graham has received grants from Kala Art Institute and Women’s Studio Workshop. She is now designing virtual worlds and her first VR project called “The Muybridge Mausoleum” was completed in 2017 and is currently developing "Diatribes", a virtual fun house. In addition to her own practice, Graham is an active member on SFMoMA’s Games Advisory Board and an arts educator who has taught at San Francisco Art Institute, Southern Exposure, and Creativity Explored.
